What I’m Listening To

kdlabel

What’s good everyone? I know I’ve blogged about this in the past, but for me, talking about music never gets old. Especially since there’s always fresh stuff coming out on a regular basis.

Right now I’ve been listening to a lot of new artists. If you follow me on Twitter then you probably know I have two artists that I basically listen to all the time: Privaledge and Dave East. Those guys are really good friends of mine. I’m really passionate about music and I know they are, too. I really think they can go far in this industry, so I listen to those guys a lot.

I’ve also been listening to Mac Miller. Me and him became friends not too long ago. Kendrick Lamar, I’ve gotten to know him a little bit as well. Wiz Khalifa, a lot of the new guys.

Of course I listen to the Lil’ Waynes, Jay Zs and Fabolouses, Joe Budden – I listen to guys like that. But I like to see the new guys come in and take the torch from those guys. New school guys like J Cole as well. Guys like him, their flow is on another level. They get me excited, they get me hyped to play the game. I don’t know if they know it or not, but they’ve really helped me a lot this year and play at the highest level. They give me some energy.

So who are you guys listening to right now? Anyone I should check out? Anyone that can get me hyped?

    You definitely should check out some Mos Def and Talib Kweli, they both can get me pumped up, especially Mos Def’s album “Black on Both Sides”. Also some Wyclef Jean and Nas, those guys are all really good. Now if you wanna get real pumped up Roy Jones Jr’s track “Can’t be touched” always gets me pumped.

  • colepoland

    big k.r.i.t. and theophilus london

  • pg_ef

    It’s not really my kind of music since I’ve been listening mainly to rock and metal, but if you’re a NBA fan you simply cannot miss rap music. So if I’d have to choose, my favourite artists would be Game, Xzibit and Jay-Z. Of course you can’t miss 2Pac. Sometimes I also listen to Dan Black and K’naan.

    I’d recommend Lecrae as well as PRo. I bumped Rehab in my car for well over a month. You can get PRo’s PSA Mixtape for free at http://www.reachrecords.com/musicmadness/. They rep the gospel, but they can definitely flow with the pros. God bless.
